"The Pimsleur language learning system (also known as the Pimsleur method or Pimsleur approach) is a language acquisition method developed by Paul Pimsleur. The system is based on four main ideas: anticipation, graduated interval recall, core vocabulary, and organic learning.

Unlike most textbooks, no teacher is required and an active online community awaits those who want a more interactive approach. The series was written by a native English speaker and a native Japanese speaker, which means that different ways of thinking about language acquisition are considered.
Highly recommended by users for bridging the gap between low intermediate and advanced Japanese, this textbook covers all the language skills, including speaking and listening. The book introduces concepts in a thorough but approachable way, helping users to form an understanding of the language, rather than just memorize.
There are two versions of this textbook: One is written in romaji while the other uses kana. The kana version also includes supplementary kanji lessons at the end. This may put off some students, as the kanji has not been properly integrated nor contextualized for the corresponding lesson, which can be especially problematic considering that Japanese is a high-context language and culture.
Part 2 explains various Japanese grammar points from the basics, such as particles, counters and conjugations. Everything a newcomer to Japanese needs to know is laid out in simple language, making this a great guide for those just starting out on their Japanese journey.
This book offers thorough explanations on nearly 70 particles in the Japanese language, from basics like は and が to more complicated ones like だの and すら. Plenty of example sentences are provided to account for a variety of circumstances in which particles may appear.
Each lesson begins with a lesson on kanji as a whole, such as how radicals are composed, how kanji functions in the Japanese language and even common kanji in family names. Every lesson covers 10 kanji apiece, breaking them into their stroke orders and meanings, with reading and writing exercises in easy Japanese.
Stories are arranged based on difficulty, with furigana provided for all kanji. While there are no full English translations, only detailed notes on each page, this format makes for a good challenge and allows the reader to focus primarily on the Japanese language.
Try doing dialogue practice with your language partner with the stories in the lesson. Plug the kanji from the unit into your flashcard app. The possibilities are endless with a textbook by your side!
Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Language Week) is an international Irish language festival and one of the biggest celebrations of our native language and culture that takes place each year in Ireland and in many other countries.
I spent almost the entire year going from absolutely zero knowledge of the language to fluency (with a lot of frustrating hours of poor resources and not having anyone to practice with), and then I finally jetted off to the other side of the world to the Irish Gaeltacht in Donegal to put everything I learned to use.
After all the hard work I put into learning Irish and documenting my progress here on this blog, it was the perfect climax for me to travel all the way to Ireland from Australia and be surrounded by the language for several weeks.
I stumbled on this article and because you have been more helpful than any other site, I feel obliged to leave a comment telling you how grateful I am! A lot of other sites about learning Irish all say for the most part "Don't worry about the dialect, learn the CO and you'll eventually pick up the dialects" but I'd prefer to learn the authentic Irish language. Thank you so much for labeling which dialects each product uses! I'll be sure to start building up my library with these.
Tagalog is one of the most widely spoken Filipino languages, mostly because it's one of two official languages in the Philippines. In this article we've laid out everything you need to know about learning Tagalog. It doesn't matter if you're new to language learning, or if you already speak several foreign languages, you've come to the right place. Enjoy!
There aren't a lot of great courses or apps that were created specifically for learning Tagalog (most Filipino courses are converted from courses for Spanish, French, or other languages). Filipinopod101 is one of the best and most comprehensive resources for learning Tagalog.
If you want to learn Tagalog, you won't find a better program than Filipinopod101. It's first on our list because it's simply the most comprehensive language learning program for Tagalog we've found. What to know the best part? Filipinopod101 offers a free lifetime account, which gives you access to some of their podcast lessons and most of their learning resources (think of this as a free version of the site). You will need premium paid access to use the full library of lessons (starting from $4 per month). Filipinopod101 is available as a site and an app.
Pimsleur is an audio course and app that uses a trademarked question and response method to teach you a foreign language. Pimsleur trains your brain to speak and think in Tagalog by recreating the sensation of talking with a real native speaker. Pimsleur is made up of 30 minute lessons which use audio recordings. In each lesson you are taught a series of words and phrases.
Though Pimsleur is primarily an audio language course, there is also a reading portion as well. Reading Tagalog isn't as challenging as languages with different alphabets (or in the case of Chinese no alphabet!). Suffice to say, Pimsleur will give you the basics you need to learn how to read in Tagalog.
Italki is a website and app with a searchable database of language teachers from around the world. On Italki learners can purchase what are called Italki credits, and use them to book private classes with a professional teacher or tutor. The classes happen on video chat (usually Skype). There are over 80 Tagalog teachers available on Italki from places as diverse as Manila and the United Kingdom.
Italki also has many useful free features. The most valuable is their language partners feature. You can search through the profiles of other users and find a native Tagalog speaker who is looking to tighten up his or her English, and setup a language exchange with them. There's also a public forum where you can ask Filipinos for help translating or pronouncing difficult words. If you're serious about learning Tagalog then you should definitely check out Italki.
Tagalog (also known as Filipino) is one of two official languages in the Philippines (the other is English). There are over a hundred different languages native to the Philippines. In fact only about one in four Filipinos speaks Tagalog as their first language.
In the past the Philippines were not an independent country. Instead they were a Spanish colony and then an American territory. After World War Two the Philippines gained independence, and sought a national language that wasn't a colonial one. Tagalog was chosen as an official language, and not without some controversy from native speakers of the other Filipino languages.
If you are a native English speaker, you should have no problem getting around in the Philippines (remember that English is the second official language). So you don't necessarily need to speak Tagalog in order to travel in the Philippines.
That being said, even knowing a few words in Tagalog is likely to garner a warm reaction from locals. In almost any country people respond well when foreigners take the time to learn their language. That's probably even more true in the famously sunny culture of the Philippines. Filipinos will appreciate and be more friendly to an English speaker who took the time to learn Tagalog.
A lot of people who learn Tagalog as a second language, do so because they have a some kind of personal connection to the language. Many learn Tagalog to connect with close or distant relatives, learn about their cultural heritage, or better communicate with a significant other. These are among the most valuable reasons for learning any foreign language. Even knowing a word here or there can be endearing those you love.
Some people learn Tagalog because it's fun. Learning a foreign language can be reward enough in and of itself. Tagalog is also so closely tied to Filipino culture, that it's hard not to enjoy learning it. Something of the fun and warm aspects of the Filipino people carries over into their official language.
